A few weeks ago we were asked if we'd be up for presenting a 1.5 hour session on music supervision and production to a bunch of IPA TV Production Knowledge students at Framestore. We were honoured to have been thought of and so last week that's what Dan, Fred and Rachel from Native did.
The IPA has run this TV Production course for over 30 years, during which time it has become recognised within the industry as a valuable and important part of a producer's training. The 13 week intensive course takes delegates through the entire TV Production process and covers everything from business affairs, casting, insurance, post production, animatics, procurement and music amongst many other subjects.
During our presentation, we discussed everything from the importance of music, a day in the life of a music supervisor, how to nail your brief plus considerations with scheduling and budget when it comes to sync, composition, re-records and other licensing options.
Thanks so much to the IPA and Fiona (RKCR/Y&R) for having us along. We hope the students found our presentation informative and at some points entertaining :)
We can't wait to attend the graduation in a couple of months!
